Denny, I just pull the thing out and then drop the chiller in the pot...I think the
goodie is mostly out of the hops by that time. B.T.W. I dislike the green glop
from the pellet hops....The one I made also does not have those hooks on the
allthreads, just straight pieces and I can scooch it over against one wall of the
BK and have room for the chiller to fit as well....
Also Of Interest is that you can also squeeze the wort back out of the hop flowers
and so the hop loss is Minimal as you remove the unit from the boil.
